LOS ANGELES – Now Britney Spears has an incentive to take panty-free pics: she can get paid for it. But on one condition: she has to get some help for her bizarre behavior.
Pop Tarts has learned that the Britster wasn’t rejected by Playboy as many outlets have reported, and Hugh Hefner himself wants nothing more than to help her get her clothes off — but there's a catch.
“Hef has said that he is more than happy to feature Britney in the magazine once she can put herself back on the road to recovery,” said a rep for Playboy.
However, Pop Tarts finally has a reason why Britney so often parades and parties without panties.
A source in the style and wardrobe world who has worked extensively with Spears says she used to sometimes suffer spots and soreness from her cotton coverings.
"Britney has sensitive skin all over. We tried lots of different materials, but sometimes she would get a bit of a reaction, which naturally is very uncomfortable," said our source. "Especially when she would be on stage under the hot lights performing, all that sweating makes things worse."
That doesn't mean we should forgive the Britster for flashing too much flesh — our insider adds that "she should at least wear longer dresses or pants or something."
But nobody can put the Brit Brit in the corner and make her do as she is told, not even the judge in her custody case.
Word on the street is that Spears called the legal lord an "old fart," which is obviously a very intelligent means of regaining custody of her little ones.
Meanwhile, former *NSYNC star Lance Bass has tried reaching out to the Mouseketeer melodist (even admitting she was the first one he "came out to" to try and make her feel better after her annulled Vegas wedding), but his hand of help has been brushed off by Brit Brit.
And with her right to visit her sons temporarily suspended until she complies with court orders (such as regular drug testing and parental coaching classes — Britney was reportedly MIA Thursday night when a parent coach showed up at her house) all the stress seemed to be weighing on Spears Thursday when she turned on her pals the paparazzi.
The pop shtick spent the morning soaking in some UV rays at Sunset Tan, but snapped at the snappers while coming down the stairs.
"She was yelling at them to leave her alone," a Sunset staffer told Pop Tarts. "We helped her out — they were just everywhere. All over the streets like a pack of rats."
Later in the day, only hours after losing her child-visitation rights, the troubled pop star appears to have run over a TMZ photographer's foot with her car.
A video posted on TMZ.com shows that Brit Brit was driving with one hand covering her mouth through a patch of paparazzi when her banged-up Benz tussled with some TMZ toes.
Eyewitnesses said the songstress seemed stunned but didn't stop to assist her pap pal.
Spears was reportedly driving out of a Beverly Hills medical building, and appears to have been covering her mouth to hide newly blown-out lips.
But in spite of all the wacky behavior we have come to expect from the loony lyricist, we must remember that Spears has a soul that has been torn in two.
The words to a song entitled "Why Should I Be Sad" on her upcoming album "Blackout" (to be released on Oct. 30) reportedly recalls the ruptured romance between her and K-Fed.
Although the song was written and composed by music mogul Pharrell Williams and not the pop princess herself, the personalized lyrics launch into the pain of having "other women" mess up their marriage.
"It just seemed that Vegas/Only brought the playa out of you," the songstress sings.
K-Fed's Parents Pose for MTV
Speaking of Britney Spears , it seems she has been one-upped by an unlikely duo: the folks of Kevin Federline were popular with the paparazzi at MTV's "Celebrity Rap Superstar" finale on Thursday night.
Prying Pop Tarts spotted the creators of Britney's ex bopping to the beats — oh how they must be proud. The 'rents were in town to hip-hop with Kev's first family and former flame Shar Jackson.
Small-screen sweetheart Shar can now offcially add singing superstar to her resume, as she took out the first ever rappin' reality title ahead of runner-up "Girl Next Door" Kendra Wilkinson.
While her four mini-mes and Fed's folks fell into a frenzy when her name was announced, Shar stood silently as her eyes swelled with emotion. So is it sweet revenge against the "Crazy" crooner who stole her man some years ago?
"They should have me open the VMAs," Shar said.
Victoria Beckham Shows Off Her 'Spicy' Interior
Now that Victoria Beckham's reality show has vanished, the public doesn't have much of an opportunity to peek at Posh in private.
However, the itty bitty babe gave Pop Tarts and some VIPs a glimpse into the interior of her "Spicy" exterior in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night.
Arriving at the famed Celebrity Vault fashionably late, Mrs. Becks came to boast about the bounce of her big bed and the trimmings on her toilets with the designer who decorated her divine L.A. digs, Kelly Hoppen.
And it turns out that Posh was so proud of her palace planner at the launch of her book, "Kelly Hoppen: Home: From Concept to Reality," that she even propelled her parents into the glam gallery.
"It looks gorgeous, just gorgeous," gushed the "Girl Power" personality while perusing the pages. "So gorgeous."
Pop Tarts was also on standby for the scoop on the Spice Girls.
"I'm off to meet up with the girls tomorrow to start filming [a new video]. I can't wait!" she said.
Meanwhile, did girl-friendly model Bai Ling really think she could lure Vic from her sexy soccer spouse?
Ling (who tells Pop Tarts she comes from the moon) refused to clear out until she had "Spiced Up Her Life" with a handshake from the glamour gal (who was wearing a little Gucci dress) and even started secretly pap-snapping from her cell phone.
But it didn't take Victoria long before she wanted to pose and parlay in a private room upstairs with her folks and sister Louise Adams.
And despite her fragile frame, Pop Tarts caught Beckham joining her British brood in devouring (yes, devouring) dozens of delicious delicacies from celeb caterers the Crescent and consuming V2 vodka cocktails (from an oh-so "Posh" bottle blinged out with Swarovski crystals).
Well, our musical mama might as well make the most of it while her hubby is home with the kids (and getting his injured body parts rubbed down by a rehabilitator).
Oh, and in case you are wondering who will be watching the Beckhams go boppin' in their "Hoppen" Hollywood bedroom, Pop Tarts can exclusively reveal it will now be an oversized, near-naked Marilyn Monroe — the hand-painted picture taken just days before the "How to Marry a Millionaire" dame's death.
George Lopez Getting Ellen DeGeneres' Dog Back?
Ellen DeGeneres may not have anything to worry about when it comes to her former dogs — apparently, the little hound is headed back to the home of her hairdresser pal. Well, that's if funnyman George Lopez has anything to do with it.
"Ellen is a friend of mine, OK — she just has to say the word [and] I can get that dog back. Just call me Ellen, I promise I can get that dog back," Lopez told Pop Tarts at Thursday's "PADRES" fundraising gala to support children and their parents in the combat against cancer.
"I'm not going to say how, I'm not going to say when, but Ellen, I love you, got your back baby. I'll get you that dog, I will even get you the brother of that dog."
Jennifers Touch the Hearts of Hollywood
For anyone out there planning parenthood sometime soon, Pop Tarts suggests if it's girl, the name "Jennifer" guarantees goodness that's next to godliness.
Just ask Jennifer Garner's Aussie "Alias" alumna Melissa George, who also acted alongside Jennifer Aniston in "Derailed" and presently plays the wife of Josh Hartnett in the new horror flick "30 Days of Night."
"The person who has really touched me and taught me the art of being a human being, an actress and a mother is Jennifer Garner … oh and of course Jennifer Aniston," the busy actress told Pop Tarts while promoting her very moving upcoming movie "Music Within" (which also features Ron Livingston and Michael Sheen) and centers around the American Disability Act and the difference one man can make.
"Working so closely with those two women, I know how hard they work in the public eye dealing with paparazzi and interviews, then they're on set for such long, long hours, yet they still have such great respect for anybody and everybody around them. The Jennifers embody everything that is amazing when it comes to being an actress, a wife and in one of those cases, a mother."
Speaking of the Jens, Aniston is stealing Garner's guy Ben Affleck as her steamy screen star in "He's Just Not That Into You," and has a frenzy of future films all due to debut in 2008.
And although Aniston is back to a busy box-office agenda, an insider has told Pop Tarts that more than ever, the "Friends" sensation is ready to play a "real" rather than "reel" mom, just like Garner.
"Jen [Aniston] is so wonderful with children. She has a strong maternal instinct, but the timing just hasn't been right," said the source. "I know she wouldn't really feel complete as a person if she never had kids of her own."
But Aniston might also go down the Angelina road and adopt.
"Jennifer is still only 38, but if need be, adoption certainly isn't out of the question," added the friend of the former "Friend."
'Clean' Tara Conner Back to Parties and Boys
Former Miss USA Tara Conner caught international attention late last year when boss Donald Trump sent the teary titleholder to reign in rehab.
But now that the blond beauty queen is back in the spotlight as the "parent" personality on “Pageant Place," it seems she has also regained her passion for parties and posing.
However, Conner has happily converted cocktails to conversation and calories.
“I love going out and getting lots of food with genuine friends who can actually hear what I’m saying,” she told FOX. “And of course, I still love to go out for a good dance."
Pop Tarts toasted (tonic only) with Tara at Tuesday night’s T-Mobile Sidekick LX Launch in Los Feliz, but more cell phones also mean more possibilities she could be popped prancing and partying by the paparazzi.
"You know it doesn't happen all the time. It's kind of one of those things [where] you can put yourself in the position or you don't put yourself in the position, but it's not that big of a deal,” Tara told FOX. “It comes with the job."
While Conner is now cool with these flaws of fame, returning to her “demons” in the Trump Tower to film her new MTV reality series was a little more moving.
“You know it was mixed emotions, mixed feelings but overall it was a lot of fun,” the 10-month sober sash sister said. “The girls are great and gave me a chance to get back and make good with the organization and do a favor for Mr. Trump, so it's been a lot of fun."
And although the Kentucky native has battled and beaten the blues (and is even writing a book about how she overcame those bad times) her advice to the likes of Britney Spears is basic.
“Those troubled girls will get it together when it's their time,” Tara said. “When they finally hit that rock bottom and they want to make a change, then they'll make a change.”
But while Tara is no longer tempted by intoxication, it seems she still has the skills to “sneak” around with guys — a talent she tested out tirelessly while living in Trump Tower before finally being busted bringing boys back into the apartment.
After getting down like a “Gold Digger” to the live sounds of Kanye West and the spinning to the scratches of DJ AM alongside Carmen Electra (plus her enormous entourage) and pouting porn princess Jenna Jameson, Tara picked up another sneaky “Sidekick” at Hollywood hotspot Hyde.
Prying Pop Tarts caught Conner and Kimberly Stewart’s bygone beau “Laguna Beach” boy Talan Torriero talking to the door guys before turning around, only to tip-toe in together via the back door…
But Conner’s not the only one to have found a new “Sidekick." It seems Nick Cannon has moved on from last week’s engagement break-off with supermodel Selita Ebanks by bumming with a very big boy band of buddies.
The music man tried to keep smiling at the packed party, but when an insensitive media outlet mentioned the leggy lingerie model, he said he was “sorry” and stormed down the carpet.
Is Lindsay Lohan a 'Mean Girl' Who Broke Up Another Engagement?
Lindsay Lohan may be a reformed rehabber who has just returned to her old hunting ground of Hollywood, but our “Bobby” beauty seems to still be hunting already hooked-up men.
According to Us Weekly, the “Drama Queen” has poisoned the pending wedding bells between her current snowboard beau Riley Giles and his former flame Bree Tierney of Utah. The source told the mag that Giles suddenly stopped calling his fiancee after meeting Linds at Cirque Lodge and she only found out about their romantic relations via the rag mags … ouch.
And aside from having a few “Toxic” troubles, what else do Lindsay and Britney Spears have in common?
Linds is back in Tinseltown getting ready for a role as a tantalizing-tango girl in “Dare to Love Me,” and to prepare for the twists and twirls she has been training at Spears’ old North Hollywood dance domain The Millennium Studios.
“Lindsay has been working really hard,” a staff member at the studio told Pop Tarts. “She looks really refreshed and picks up the steps very quickly.”
L.A. Fashion 'Fall' Collection: Model Crashes Through Catwalk
It was just another star-studded L.A. Fashion Week show at SkyBar on Tuesday night, but that doesn't mean we were prepared for a fashionista to go flying.
The “Whose Next, What’s Next” parade promoted products from the likes of Lotta Stennson NY and B’s Purses and Shandang, but instead of showcasing the styles for spring 2008, the celebrity crowd (including Richard Branson, Bai Ling and Jack Coleman) was given a sneak preview of what’s happening in the "fall."
Pop Tarts was present as a male model executed a back flip, but his heavy landing ruptured the runway. The stunner strutting behind him was unaware of the gaping hole and suddenly she fell straight through the floor, which was suspended over a swimming pool.
But it turns out that “reel” “Heroes” hottie Jimmy Jean-Louis (who was a guest model) became a “real” Hero when he ran to rescue the damsel in distress and protected those behind her from following suit.
However, this is Hollywood and the show must go on — after a brief breather, the design debut continued.
Sucking for Survival: Is Josh Hartnett Hungry for Human Flesh?
Josh Hartnett may be known as a Hollywood heartthrob and “Pearl Harbor” hero, but the screen sensation is now familiar with the fine art of blood-sucking after sundown.
“I’ve always loved vampire films, but I never really thought I’d be in one,” Hartnett told FOX at Tuesday’s premiere of the horror flick “30 Days of Night."
“When this film came along, it was pretty much Sam Raimi [“The Grudge” producer] who convinced me that they were going to make something that was elevated with real characters and a real story and not just a gore-fest film. It was going to be something that was little bit more highbrow.”
And although Hartnett told FOX he could never eat another human for survival when the cameras weren’t rolling, it seems he doesn’t mind doing a little sucking and smooching in the darkness with R&B dame Rihanna.
Apparently, the pair popped Dom Perignon at a private table at New York’s Pink Elephant last week after Rihanna’s Times Square concert before getting closer with some kissing and cuddling … and leaving together in the early hours of the morning.
Halle Berry Wants Another Naked Man
“Things We Lost in the Fire” star Halle Berry is preparing to start a family with model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry at 41, but good news for her fans — this “Perfect Stranger” is more than willing to mix movie-making with motherhood. She even has her sights set on another naked statue for her soon-to-be mini-me to play with.
“Oh, there’s always room left for more Oscars,” she told FOX, agreeing that the statue can serve as both a “trophy and toy.”
And as the old saying goes, you win some, you lose some, and Halle soon will lose her lovely locks.
“I have a movie called 'Tulia' that I’m set to do when I come back to work, and then I’ll play a jealous ex in 'Nappily Ever After' somewhere in the mix,” Berry said. “Whenever that comes to my plate, I will have to shave my head. I’m still struggling with the hair issue a little."
However, the fear of forgoing one of her finest feminine traits is nothing compared to the cold sweat set off by contemplating childbirth.
“People can tell you what it’s like, but until I actually experience it I’ll never know,” the “Gothika” glamour gal added. “It’s exciting and scary; right now I’m trying to stay as fit and strong as possible.”
But the stunning screen siren already has had plenty of parenting practice as a weeping widow in Susanne Bier’s “Things We Lost in the Fire."
“Working on this film gave me a lot of insight into being a mom. I really bonded with these children, and through making this movie I knew that I was really meant to be a mother and that made me excited about the future for sure,” she told FOX at Monday night’s Los Angeles premiere of the film.
“And I also love the mixing of races; I love that it’s not mentioned in any way,” she added. “Visually you see it, but the characters never mention it, and to me that’s reflective of sort of the modern-day family. This is how we’re living today."
And even though Berry’s belly is burgeoning more and more each day, the “Monster’s Ball” bella already is securing her spot as a star-studded yummy mummy by “eating a clean diet and staying away from sugar."
However, is it humanly possible that there is one man on the planet who doesn’t find Berry bafflingly beautiful, even on-set in the early hours of the morning?
“I don’t think anybody looks very good at that time — even Halle,” commented her co-star David Duchovny.
Victoria's 'Spicy' Secret
Every year, the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is sexy and stylish, but it seems things this year are going to be a little more “Posh” than the diamond-encrusted bras we've seen before.
Pop Tarts has learned that on Nov. 15, leggy lingerie models such as Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio will strut to the sounds of the Spice Girls in the pop group's very first performance of their sold-out reunion tour.
The VS supermodels, however, won't be catwalking in their cotton coverings to the Spice Girls alone. Kanye West and Seal are the lucky lads who will be providing beats for the bouncing beauties.
And even though fans have to wait until Dec. 4 to see the models on CBS, Victoria is giving you a “Secret” chance to make sure you are one of first to "Spice Up Your Life" with the brand new "Greatest Hits" album from the British babes.
You have until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday night to log on to www.victoriassecret.com to pre-order 13 of their pop hits plus two bonus tracks and two downloadable mixes.
Ricky Martin 'Bangs' on Hollywood Boulevard
Ricky Martin will remain a “Virgin” forever — well, at least he’ll remain right outside the Virgin Megastore on Hollywood Boulevard. The pop prince was immortalized on Tuesday with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame not only for his contribution to music but for his efforts to stop sex slavery and sick treatment of children across the world.
“This man is a true star,” said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa as Martin’s eyes swelled with tears. “Here in Hollywood, we have had the pleasure of watching Ricky grow from a young man into a musical legend and a champion of human and children’s rights.”
Ricky was overwhelmed with emotion.
“I’m not here to be seduced by fear. I’m here because I am ready and I’m surrounded by people I truly trust,” Ricky told FOX amid the frenzy of fans. “I have an amazing team who supports me in my quest to stop children [from] being forced into prostitution and slavery. I think it is my anger that motivates me to make a difference.”
And how did he “Shake His Bon Bon” when he heard the word that he’s been granted a star?
“I didn’t have a party or anything; I didn’t think too much about it,” Martin said. “I just wanted to take one step at a time … but maybe I will celebrate tonight."
Jaime Pressly Puts Her Hands All Over Her Models
Jaime Pressly may be an Emmy-Award winning screen star, movie mom and now clothing connoisseur, but the blond beauty still has no qualms about getting her “dressy” hands dirty.
The “My Name is Earl” girl debuted her designs from the “J'aime” line on Monday night at Hollywood hotspot Boulevard 3, dragging with her an “Entourage” of stars including Rex Lee, Nicky Hilton, Wilmer Valderrama and Bai Ling.
But Pressly had no time to be a prima donna princess — she had fashions to flaunt. Prying Pop Tarts spotted the star doing all her own dirty work, speaking to security staff, working with the models, systemizing the seating and even personally asking guests to switch seats to ensure her co-star Giovanni Ribisi was front and center for the collection.
And like a good mama, Pressly blasted off straight after the final bikini was bared.
"I’ve got to get home to my bed and my baby!” she told Pop Tarts before bustling into her hubby’s waiting car. Now which “baby” was our blond babe referring to?
Julia Roberts: 'Insecure' and Unemployed
Julia Roberts may still be every inch the “Pretty Woman," but the big-smiled star is somewhat “insecure” when it comes to her skills and success.
“There was never a real point in my career where I thought I had made it,” Roberts told FOX on the carpet of Friday’s American Cinematheque Award presentation, where the Academy Award-winner was honored for her memorable contribution to moving cinema.
“I’m an actor; I’m part of a very insecure breed. I don’t know if you ever really think like that necessarily.”
However, now that Julia has stepped away from the spotlight to play a mommy of three, she has embraced an employment status that no longer involves too many movies and multimillion-dollar contracts.
“I love to work and I’ve worked with really great people and had a great time in my career,” the “Runaway Bride” beauty added. “But focusing on family means I don’t really work anymore at all.”
Strangely enough, one thing that hasn't changed is Julia's itty bitty waistline (despite that her youngest is a mere 4 months old); however, the screen siren insists it is only because "her dress is pulled so tight."
And even though Garry Marshall (the man who taught Roberts to be a “Pretty Woman”) believes that most box office golden girls “act better after being mom,” he thinks Julia will get back into business behind the lens.
“She definitely wants to direct,” he divulged. “I think that will be the next direction she takes in her career.”
And despite that Roberts only has eyes for her camera guy, Danny Moder, this “American Sweetheart” still manages to have other guys falling at her feet.
“Julia is still box-office gold,” Blair Underwood told FOX. “I’m glad she’s taking some time away to be mommy and just take that time to find out what is right for her. She’s so well-liked, no, I should say loved, in this industry that studios will be squabbling to have her back.”
And even Tom Hanks made no effort to “Cast Away” his affection for his famous friend.
“Everybody loves Julia, everybody, everybody,” Hanks told the clapping crowd as Moder put his arm around his wife, smiling and nodding in agreement.
“You do an extraordinary job, extraordinarily well,” added Denzel Washington while presenting a teary-eyed Julia with her honor.
Roberts also said that two weeks before turning 40, she has "all I could ever ask for."
"More than anything I am just the most proud wife and mother to three of the most amazing children," she said. "And the widening of my life, and my hips, is really just the true gift of my husband, Danny, who I would be so lonely without."
Fergie's All Woman Underneath
Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson may be seen as just one of the guys in her group the Black Eyed Peas, but underneath her hoodie she's all about the “Glamorous” gimmicks of being a girl.
“I love lingerie; I love Victoria’s Secret,” the star recently told FOX. “I love that you can feel like a girl even in your sweats or that you can feel like a woman in your sexy underwear.”
And when it comes to what Fergie parades in private, she is proud to announce her personals are almost always pink.
“I’m obsessed with the VS 'Pink' Pajama Collection; it is so comfortable but it makes me feel so cute at the same time,” said the "Duchess." “But I wear all kinds of things to bed … if [anything] at all.”
Speaking of stark naked, Fergie is also all about “baring all” when it comes to her music.
“I just love that people are relating to my songs, songs like 'Big Girls Don't Cry,' you know, the more personal side of my record, the fact that that's touching people is really what is important to me," she said.
“I feel like all the blessings are coming back to me for all the hard work I’ve put in over the years. I'm traveling all over the world and it's just going back to being that little girl, 7 years old, and having that dream," she added.
But traveling all over the world does have its down side, as the performer discovered last week with an unpleasant plate of less than “Fergalicious" food.
The Grammy Award-winning Peas were forced to cancel a concert in San Salvador when their singing starlet was hit with a bout of food poisoning.
Fergs initially tried her best to belt out a tune or two, but stopped and said she needed fluids before staggering side stage.
And just last month in Stockholm, fellow bandman Taboo was also KO'd by take-out toxins and had to be taken to the emergency room. Let’s hope these guys stick to plates of “Peas” that are positively fresh from now on.
Shar Jackson Raps on Fed-Ex; Britney Reads
This girl is gold — let’s hope Kevin "Back-Up Dancer" Federline knows what he threw away when he shunned a pregnant Shar Jackson to go boozing and bumming with Britney Spears.
The multi-talented mama and stand-out in MTV’s “Celebrity Rap Superstar,” however, is standing by the daddy who did the dirty on her.
“He is a great dad,” Jackson said when asked about the custody circus in which Kevin is caught.
So how does this small-screen sweetheart stay smiling when it comes to K-Fed?
“Women come up to me all the time and ask how I do it … meaning not be bitter, have a good relationship with Kevin and survive the media frenzy,” Shar told FOX. “I tell everyone that it wasn’t/isn’t always easy, but I rely on faith and family and am blessed with my children and an ever-growing career.”
And an ever-growing career it is, as Jackson looks set to cement her stardom as much more than just a Fed-Ex.
And insiders tell us that the 31-year-old is getting ready to possibly record her own rap tracks and take her sweet smile to the stage in an upcoming play.
But speaking of Federline’s long-lost loves, Britney spent Sunday tucked away in her banged-up Benz sipping Starbucks at a gas station while her pals, the paparazzi, did the pumping and paid the price.
But Brit had a book and was busted reading — yes, reading — "The Chronicles of Narnia." Perhaps Spears now thinks she’s a lion and a witch with one stylish wardrobe.
'Scream' of a Halloween: David Arquette Reveals Costume (Sort Of); Courteney Cox Condones Nips and Tucks
It is no secret that Courteney Cox’s kooky husband, David Arquette of “Scream,” is fond of a little fiendishness, and this year, FOX was able to get a sneak peek at what his somewhat creative costume will be come Oct. 31.
“It’s going to based around what scares me the most: the world. We have so much to figure out and at the end of the day it’s hopefully all about love,” he said.
“We need some more leaders in this world ... as a father I just want the world to be a safer place, a nicer place, a place that focuses more on love and I’d love to have my next film be a 'Bambi.'"
So will David be donning the dress of a deer, the world or of love?
“Let’s just say it’s a combination of all three,” he replied. “You’ll see.”
And why does David love the horror genre?
"It’s a good time — I mean, it's fun,” Arquette said. “I remember the first time I saw 'Halloween,' I was with my friends and it was right around Halloween time and just being scared and like (makes scared sound). I don’t know, it’s such a cool feeling when films incite an emotion in you.”
But strangely enough, he isn’t a fan of the knives and scalpels that are set to strip wrinkles. David told FOX that he cannot condone cosmetic surgery, but his wife has a conflicting opinion.
“She tells me it’s easy to say that when you’re a guy,” he said.
What 'Funny' Things Must a Guy Do for Jessica Biel?
Jessica Biel may be one of the world's sexiest actresses, but for the millions of men who want to steal her from Justin Timberlake, their best bet is to bring "SexyBack" with a bit of buffoonery behind closed doors.
"A relationship with someone who is funny-sexy is way more fun," the starlet recently told FOX. "Sexy-sexy can be sort of boring; I much prefer people who can make fun of themselves and not take themselves too seriously, someone who can be ridiculous. That's the most attractive thing."
So does that mean our JT became skilled at slapstick to snag his "Senorita"?
Who knows, but one thing is for sure: It does take more than banter to get Biel bare, even in a movie or photo shoot.
"I just think you do something for the right projects," she said. "[If] it is a magazine, it has to be classy, or it has to work for the type of movie. You make choices depending on the situation and project."
And Biel won't be playing "Wonder Woman" in the upcoming flick as initially speculated, nor is she prepared to put up with the pain that comes with posing for fashion's sake.
"I could never be model — it's very difficult because you're always standing like in a weird position," Jessica said. "Your back hurts and you're wearing heels. You're almost always uncomfortable and you're scratching over here — it's never nearly as sexy as it appears."
However, something that appears to be even more than simply sexy is the burgeoning bond between Biel and her beau. Jessica has been joining Justin for several of his cross-country concerts.
"They are very much in love — this really is the first time Jess has felt so strongly for someone," an insider very close to the beauty told Pop Tarts.
A Pop Tarts spy even spotted the "Lovestoned" stars canoodling at a Chicago Bears game last weekend, where their focus was more on fondling than on football.
But how does Biel deal with the rag mags, packs of paps and their never-ending snaps?
"It's definitely difficult to deal with, but you do really have to get into a place where you feel Zen about it," she said. "You just have to know that somebody is going to be taking your picture while you're going to the laundry and picking up your dry cleaning, and you just go about your day and ignore them.
"I look at a magazine and they know more about me than I do!" she continued. "It is so funny how it really has become such a crazy, crazy world, but at the end of the day you really just have to be able laugh through everything."
Speaking of paps, it seems the "7th Heaven" hottie may have to watch her man's moves to ensure his former flame Britney Spears doesn't try for some "FutureSex/LoveSounds."
A worker at Hollywood's Virgin Megastore confirmed that a pap popped in on Saturday to pick up JT's tracks at Spears' request, and was even kind enough to bring the album out to Brit Brit, who was waiting to get her "SexyBack" in her banged-up Benz.
No Little Longorias: Eva Banned From Babies but Still Plays 'Parent' for Charity
Eva Longoria and Tony Parker may be riding the wave of hitched happiness, but apparently any plans to start a family have been flagged with a "no bambinos" decree from her "Desperate" director.
According to Britain's Sun newspaper, Eva and her basketball beau will have to wait another season or two before she can burgeon her belly with a baby, as the show's creator Marc Cherry doesn't want the plot to be poisoned by a pregnancy from its leading lady.
"Marc's not kidding, because he maps the year out and really knows the story line. When Marcia [Cross who plays Bree] became pregnant it was unexpected, and it was hard for him to write around," Longoria told the paper.
"Tony and I are excited about starting a family, but because Marc has forbidden me to get pregnant this year, we're gonna spend time as a married couple and build a solid foundation together before we bring our child into the world."
But that still won't stop Eva from being a motivating "mom" this Thursday when she when steals the spotlight as host of the PADRES Contra El Cáncer (Parents Against Cancer) fund-raising gala at The Lot in West Hollywood.
Pop Tarts has learned that the Tinseltown tiny and her team of "Desperate" divas including Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Nicollette Sheridan will put their "reel" life differences aside for the night in order to make "real" differences in the lives of many less-fortunate others.
But we've heard that Teri Hatcher won't be high-tailing it to the glamorous gala. Is she a little hot-headed that she's not the headliner? To find out why, stay tuned. …
Scott Baio 'REALLY' Couldn't Care Less About FOX Award
Scott Baio may have launched his star-studded career as a teen on "Happy Days," but now that he is "45 and single," it seems the newly minted reality star has become bitter.
Baio won a FOX Really Award for "Favorite Non-Competition Program," but the former cousin of the Fonz was less than impressed when Pop Tarts caught up with him backstage at swanky Boulevard 3 immediately after his win.
Apparently, all he had to do was "show up" to take the sought-after trophy and couldn't care less about making a winning speech.
Why so snappy, Scotty?
"Look, to tell you the truth I forgot this whole thing was even on tonight," he told us. "I've been busy redoing myself and I had a stomach flu and I've got more important things to think about. My manger called me at 5 p.m. today and said a car would be over to collect me in 20 minutes and I was like 'For what?'"
And what's worse, the "I'm too good to care" reality rogue "didn't even know he was nominated." Goodness, we're so sorry to have inconvenienced you with an award, Mr. Baio.
Meanwhile, we highly recommend that parents don't encourage their young ones to make "Top Model" Adrianne Curry their "Top Role Model," as this glamour girl got the gong for "Favorite Pottymouth" — and it is no wonder why.
"I think my Gran is gonna be pretty BEEP upset. But I want to thank my mom who taught me all the BEEP foul words I know," she told us after her win. "All I had to do to — get this — was say things like 'You're a BEEP BEEP that smells like a BEEP and I want you to BEEP die and rot in BEEP BEEP hell.'"
So, Curry's mama taught her the craft of cussing, but does Adrianne plan to pass this on to her own "Brady Bunch" babies? (The reality star is married to Christopher Knight, who used to play Peter Brady.)
"My vulgar-mouthed mom raised both my brother and I, and I am a BEEP pottymouth, and he isn't," Adrienne said. "So they will either swear or not, but I have no intentions to restrict what I BEEP say. I think there are worse things for people to worry about than what BEEP language I use."
Pamela Walks at Wrong Time; Nicky, Paris and Kim Kardashian
Pamela Anderson may be married (again), but she's still motivated to work her "magic" for the media.
With her husband Rick "Sex Tape" Salomon standing to the side, a very not-pregnant Pamela pouted and posted for pictures on the carpet of Saturday's World Magic Awards.
But Pop Tarts has learned that Anderson might have been having a "blonde" moment, as organizers apparently wanted to "save" the "Baywatch" babe for later during the show so that the crowd of camera crews would actually stay to see more of the actual magic brought out by the world's best tricksters and transformers.
Pammy's preliminary parade meant that the media disappeared right after she was done — and no doubt the PR peeps weren't too pleased.
But over at L.A. Fashion Week's Smashbox Studios on Sunday night, it was Nicky Hilton's turn to strut in the spotlight.
The dimple-faced designer debuted her "Chick" collection, but half the somewhat unimpressed invited guests had to stay outside. Insiders tell us that the venue seats 150, and suddenly Nicky needed 100 for her entourage.
Let's hope her friends and family enjoyed the show, because the packs of potential retailers and fashionistas probably won't be wearing a closed door.
Speaking of the heiress, last year, her big sis Paris Hilton walked the walk at Boulevard 3 for the "2B Free" Fashion Show. Pop Tarts even spotted her former fling Cisco Adler in the crowd this year — expecting to see Paris, perhaps?
So we were somewhat surprised that Paris handed over her hoodies and sweats and let pal Kim Kardashian be the surprise star. Kardashian cleaned up the catwalk looking comfy yet cute.
Witherspoon Worried: Reese Scared for Her Kids' Safety
Star-studded sweetheart Reese Witherspoon is almost always seen smiling, but when it comes to the future safety of her children, the single mom gets somewhat scared.
“I think it’s definitely a scary world to be raising a young family — we live in a very frightening world and a fear-based culture where we judge people by the way they look,” the star told FOX at Wednesday’s red-carpet premiere of Gavin Hood’s new thriller "Rendition."
“We misunderstand what particular people’s intentions are because of their religion. So if I can do any part to help sort of illuminate the negative or the positive sides of either side of an argument, I think that’s a great thing to be a part of.”
And surprisingly, Reese found slumming on set with a certain co-star a rather “raunchy” experience — and we’re not talking about “acting up” alongside her on-again/off-again romantic interest Jake Gyllenhaal.
“My goodness, working with Meryl Streep was so amazing,” the “Legally Blonde” beauty added. “She is just such a hoot; she’s just such a funny lady. You know Meryl seems all serious, but truth is she can turn a dirty joke more than the rest of us."
Speaking of the “Devil” (who wasn’t wearing Prada this time), it turns out that she was the main reason Gyllenhaal joined the star-studded cast.
“The main draw card … um, Meryl Streep,” he said. “Oh, and maybe it’s the issue of something that’s so clearly, obviously, politically important.”
But when discussing his suddenly scruffy bristle and beard, Pop Tarts decided to teach him some slang from Down Under.
“I wouldn’t recognize you in the street, you look different all the time,” we told the “Brokeback" boy.
“Is that a good thing?” he asked.
Of course we assured him it was — and that “change was as good as a holiday."
“Wow, that’s amazing," Jake responded. "I like that — I’m going to use it in the next interview!”
Nobody Puts Britney in the Courtroom Corner … Until She Feels Like It
Surprise, surprise … Britney Spears hasn’t listened to anyone for months now. What made us possibly think she would start now?
The “Crazy” crooner was scheduled to “Spear” into the Supreme Court Room at 8.30 a.m. Thursday and request overnight visitation rights with her sons. Strangely enough, Brit Brit also wanted granny Lynne to supervise the sleepovers.
However, Britney saw it as more important that she fill her “Toxic” tummy with trash in Marina Del Ray. But after bumming around the beaches in her banged-up Benz, our Britster cruised on into that courthouse, y’all.
Once inside, Spears was apparently sarcastic and rude — after all, it's just a judge, no need to be nice now!
But Brit was granted one night per week to have after-midnight movies and munchies as a mama with her kids. The sleepover still has to be monitored, and her own mommy Lynne wasn’t selected to fulfill that position.
Pop Tarts watched as Spears strutted sadly from the court, with insiders telling us that she wanted ex-husband Kevin Federline and the court to give her more than one night per week, and that she plans to push the matter further.
But even despite having a few weave woes while out and about the night before, our Britster is still beautiful. Just ask her.
According to a prying Pop Tart spy, the paps packed in around the pop-shtick and as usual told her how hot she was.
“Oh, I know,” the loony lyricist responded.
Sienna Stark-Naked on Set: Even When Cameras Aren’t Rolling
Sienna Miller knew what she was getting into when she signed on to “Hippie Hippie Shake” (which involves a lot of intimate flesh-flashing), but Pop Tarts has heard that the British babe had no problem parading her personals around the set well after the words “cut” were called.
“Sienna is very comfortable in her skin,” our source said. “She doesn’t run to cover up like most people; she likes being very free and very natural.”
It’s either that, or maybe Miller just likes to arouse “action” even without lights and cameras.
Supermodel to Super-Waddle: Milla Jovovich's Pre-Birth Body Blues
Milla Jovovich has spent many years making millions from her itty-bitty bod, but now that the former face of L'Oreal has moved into the final month of pregnancy, she has been battling the blues associated with packing extra pounds.
"I feel like I swallowed a beach ball," the Ukraine-born beauty told FOX. "It is not easy, let me tell you. I've gained like 65 pounds in the last four months. I mean, be prepared."
And even though the almost nine-month journey for Jovovich has been "intense" yet "amazing" so far, she has a simple suggestion for future moms who don't think they could wear the excess weight.
"You might want to adopt," said the retired runway royal, who recently released the third installment of the action flick "Resident Evil."
Milla, 2004's highest paid model, even believes she would have been more mentally equipped at age 16 for the lumps and bumps having a baby brings. But once she hit the hottest of the hot list, the pressure of perfection has made her aware of every dot and dimple.
But despite the tough time Milla has accepting her "remodeled" mommy make-up, the model turned movie star is not at all apprehensive about playing the permanent role of parent. And as she is due in early November, this photogenic princess is pining to pop.
"I'm just, like, ready for the next phase. I'm like, let's get on with it because it's just, I can't take it anymore," Jovovich said.
And it's just as well that Milla wasn't "expecting" while actually filming her latest frightening flick, as she would have missed out on a whole lot of freaky festivity.
"Being able to do wirework and swing through the air and fly and do crazy stuff like that has always been so fun," she said.
But what we love most about this dame is her downright honesty when it comes to the camera. Jovovich admitted that she was far from proud of the second (somewhat sluggish) "Resident Evil" and was in no mood to make another one. But after reading the script, the 6-foot femme fatale was sold, and says No. 3 is "the best one yet."
Reports From Rehab: Lohan 'Hit Rock Bottom' but Scored a Romantic Rock Instead?
There are two things we know for sure about Lindsay Lohan: She's not too skilled at staying single, and she knows how too run "rings" around her romantic interests.
The "Mean Girl" looks set to get back on a positive track after leaving a Utah rehab facility last weekend. Plus, she even met a man out of the star-studded spotlight to offer her some seductive support.
Li-Lo told OK! Magazine that just before her check-in at Cirque Lodge, she hit "rock bottom." But it seems lucky Linds left the lodge sporting a sparkling stone on her ring finger.
"Yes I am seeing someone — I'm just taking it day by day," said the screen star.
Apparently, his name his Riley Giles and he's a Californian snowboarder … but let's hope he doesn't let Lohan take the downhill slide.
Natalie Portman Promotes Her 'Free Online' Steamy Sex Scene
Now that Natalie Portman has gone nude for the first time in a steamy screen sex scene, the "Darjeeling" darling is pumped with promotional pride.
"You can watch it online for free or download on iTunes," Portman told FOX at the premiere of the new Wes Anderson film in which she is featured only in a 12-minute prologue entitled "Hotel Chevalier." "This is something I’m really, really proud of."
Dressed in silky red, the Harvard graduate and "Star Wars" sensation had a Lolita-like look as she cruised the carpet — a far cry from her nothing-but-socks attire in "Chevalier."
But what is it about Anderson’s carefully constructed romantic romp that’s sparked so many head-spins?
"His attention to detail," Natalie said. "The documentary format allows us to see how strange people can be. … Anderson’s documentary really shows the nutty side of humanity."
And be sure not to blink — you never know what you'll miss.
"The things she doesn’t say are just as important as the things she does," Natalie added.
And while most males would be sent soaring in the presence of Portman, it seems Jason Schwartzman was sweatier around co-stars Owen Wilson and Adrien Brody.
"I love Owen Wilson and I love Adrian Brody very much," Schwartzman said. "I was very star-struck and nervous about being so close to them.
"We spent three months together hour after hour after hour on a moving train all throughout India, and we really did come to love each other and really did come to know each other," he continued. "It was a very claustrophobic experience, but I think it works out in the end that claustrophobia is a good environment when they are trying to make a movie about family."
Janet Jackson Wants Her Man Without Marriage
“If” anything, time has taught Janet Jackson that matrimony is messy and sensuality is much simpler without a signature.
After two marriages and two divorces, the 41-year-old longtime lover of record producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri doesn’t desire another diamond.
“In this day and age, I feel we don’t need that piece of paper. For myself I don’t need that to validate what I have with someone,” Janet told FOX at the premiere of her new movie “Why Did I Get Married?” last Thursday. “It’s about a spiritual commitment and finding your soul mate and really exchanging vows with one another, and I think that’s enough for me at least.”
And even though the music mogul doesn't want any nuptials, she still has a strong objection to “open relationships."
“No way, not for me,” she said. “Why get involved in a relationship if you want to mess around with other people? It doesn’t make sense.”
And while Janet did divulge that she is back in the studio putting together some new songs for her own album, Pop Tarts has also heard murmurs that the suddenly svelte star and her singing siblings are all fine-tuning tracks with her bro Michael Jackson, who is supposedly set to make a musical comeback.
Mark Wahlberg Used to 'Own the Night'
Mark Wahlberg might play a polished policeman in “We Own the Night,” but the Boston-born actor has confessed to some chronic criminal behavior in his younger years.
“I had so many brushes with the law growing up in an Irish community in Boston and being the youngest of nine,” he told FOX. “I started breaking the law at a young age; I had a complete disregard for authority. But all the experience I had punching and being arrested innumerable times has proved valuable to my acting career.”
But given Wahlberg’s familiarity with bad behavior, he is making sure to shield his own children from the hazards of Hollywood and doesn’t even intend to send them out to school.
“The only thing I can really do is isolate them and try to keep them away from TV and society,” said the protective parent of Ella, 4 and Michael, 1. “I will most probably home school them as well. But above everything I will try to just guide and protect them as much as I can. I want to be with my kids every step of the way.”
Erotic Eva Exposed: Mendes 'Went for It' With Joaquin Phoenix
Guys, get ready. Eva Mendes exposes "everything" in her upcoming film "We Own the Night,” and doesn’t hold back when it comes to her steamy sex scenes with Joaquin Phoenix.
“I trusted him. I trusted everybody on this and I just went for it,” she said.
But it wasn’t easy for Eva to take off her clothes and go all the way.
“The sex scene with Joaquin really wasn’t as good as it looked — these were nerve-racking scenes that are very technical and really scary,” Mendes said. “It was nothing to do with him, he is beautiful, but when you are exposing yourself emotionally and physically that’s so frightening ... you have so many people around and the camera and it’s so scary.”
In real life, the actress admits she is still haunted by the memory of turning her back on true love.
“The hardest thing to do is walk away from someone you love,” Eva said. “It shows a lot of maturity — it is one of the hardest things I have had to do.”
